Blackfish review, documentary, film Sundance Film Festival, examines the institutionalized cruelty of the Orca whale
By John Giansiracusa
Documentaries don’t often make people’s must lists, but once you see Blackfish it’ll definitely be on yours. The director, Gabriela Cowperthwaite, was initially drawn to making this documentary after learning of the death of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau. Her focused changed to exposing the brutality of capturing these highly intelligent, social animals, and the effectsvi z vi that follow due to a life in captivity.
It is proven that these animals have a part of their brain that humans do not have. Witnessing the initial capture back in the 70’s of these Orcas was truly gut wrenching. SeaWorld sent people to Puget Sound, WA to trap the Orcas, specifically the babies. When they succeeded the remaining family of about 20 Orcas lingered close by, bobbing up and out of the water screeching for the babies that were taken. The remaining Orca family was left mourning their baby they had been kidnapped.
As the story progresses we learn that SeaWorld actually consciously misinforms the public on its tours. Old visitor footage shows SeaWorld guides explaining that Orcas live longer in captivity thanks to the nutrients provided by the SeaWorld family. In actuality, they die around age 30 in captivity but females can live up to 100 in the wild. Tilikum was one of the main stars of the film, the largest male Orca in captivity. He had been transferred to Orlando after killing a trainer in Sealand Park in Canada.
Being a massive male, SeaWorld purchased this animal to create offspring. Unfortunately Tilikum was too large for his new home and often became the subject of abuse from smaller younger female Orcas. These Orcas are similar to humans in that there are many different “nationalities” of Orcas. Just as different ethnicities of humans would not get along in a cage together, all Orcas are not going to cohabitate peacefully.
Another heart wrenching example of the cruelty of imprisoned Orcas was the story of a mother and baby whale. Due to an uncooperative calf, SeaWorld decided to split up mother and baby and send the 4-year-old calf to a different SeaWorld. The moment that child whale left the tank the mother huddled in a corner echo locating for hours in pitches the trainers never heard before. How can you dispute the level of intelligence and social interaction these animals have?
Trainers were given very little background information about the killings in other parks. Anytime they questioned something they were made to feel foolish for asking. Also it was implied that if you did not agree then someone else was waiting for their job; aka shut up or you’re fired. Often the trainers had instincts about foul play but cared so much for the whales they didn’t want to leave their jobs.
The information is both astounding and horrifying and after this viewing I personally will no longer support this park. The filmmaker was not trying to create a protest against SeaWorld. They generate $2 billion dollars a year and to shut them down is impossible.
Instead she stated during the Q&A that she would like to see SeaWorld use its facilities to rehabilitate animals in need and then release them back into the wild. There are coves in the ocean that can be blocked off so these animals can seem like they are in the wild but still in a controlled environment. Through her research she realized there was so much more to the story than just a whale killing a trainer.
She wanted to make you aware of what truly happens with these whales and for you to make your own decision. Trainers are no longer to be in the pool with these whales, a decision that was made by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). SeaWorld is trying to appeal that.
Keep in mind that anytime you attend one of these killer whale shows you are risking the possibility of witnessing a death in front of your eyes as well as supporting the institutionalized cruelty of beautiful and intelligent animals.

Tania was reported not to get along with the other elephants she had lived with. They were trained to do tricks in La Cornelle Zoo, Italy. She is at the Zoo Targu-Mures whose director thinks she is just fine. We need to tell other authorities and most importantly the media otherwise. What is curious about the photo is why she is allowed to be so close to this keeper, unless he intends to use his shovel if she goes after him. By forcing her into this position and the lack of foot care, the zoo does not know how to take care of her. Tania has had anger issues in the past, and who could blame her, and is one reason she was transferred to Romania and is alone is the concrete prison. All of this is completely unacceptable

- Workers sometimes leave the bears, who have a remarkably well-developed sense of smell, trapped amid their own waste all day long. Instead of removing feces, they spray a citrus-scented product into the pits. One worker told PETA's investigator, "You just got to be careful because [federal officials] think you're trying to hide something. Which we are."
- CSBP's manager and bear handler admitted that workers deny bears food because, "[i]f you feed them … they ain't gonna eat for people."
- The manager boasted that he sprays water at one bear "all the time … to get his ass up" and force him onto display.
- The park's bear handler said it took "20 shots … in the head" to kill one of CSBP's bears. He said that there is "[n]othing better than a bear that's been eating bread and apples all its life. Meat's good."
